The Knowledge Wars

The Knowledge Wars by Peter Doherty

Synopsis: Climate scientists have warned that we need to change our behaviour in ways that may be inconvenient and threaten the commercial status quo. The result has been a polarising division in society and a sustained attack on their research.

In The Knowledge Wars, Nobel prizewinner Peter Doherty makes a passionate case for citizens to become informed so they are able to evaluate the facts of any scientific debate. It provides practical advice on how to analyse research and take meaningful action.

The Knowledge Wars challenges our assumptions and encourages us to take an evidence-based view of the world. There’s something here to offend everybody!
